“As for what I intend to do with my position, I wish to say that I am ready to work with the association.

“I am looking forward to partner and synergise with them in bringing peace and security to not only the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) but to all other bodies.

“I also want to say that with the wealth of experience I have garnered in the provision of security, we shall strategise and apply internationally acceptable practice; I will do my best and give my best,’’ he said.

Umar said he had already scored success with the qualification of the Super Eagles for CHAN, adding that it was significant both for him and the country.

“Coincidentally it was a double success, we qualified on that day and the President Commander in Chief also came back that day.

“I was there because it was my first assignment, so I am glad that we qualified, so it will go down in history for me,’’ he said.

Delivering a letter of congratulation to Umar, the Chairman of SWAN in Anambra, Anthony Oji, said he had what it takes to execute his task and pledged the cooperation of the SWAN to enable him to succeed.

“As a serving chairman of the Nigeria Police Football Association, having served as chairman of NFF Security Committee at the 2010 World Cup in ad-hoc capacity, and as chief detail of Team Nigeria to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, you are no less suitable for the job.
